Sunrise Movement Teach-ins | Nationwide | April 21-22

“Every Earth Day, politicians and corporations that aren’t doing shit to stop the climate crisis give themselves a pat on the back. This year, that comes to an end. We’re challenging politicians in every corner of the country to tell the truth about the climate crisis and the solutions we need, or we’ll expose their cowardice and do it without them. It’s time to declare a Climate Emergency and fight for the world we all deserve.”  Learn more and check to see if an event is happening in your city here.
